    Summary

    When the strange priest arrives at the palace Pentheus is taken aback. Relief is short lived, soon replaced by dozens of other worries. Who is this lackadaisical man with honey-coloured hair? Sashaying across the thrown room, light as snowfall. Sharp violet eyes, half-lidded in perpetuity. Creamy skin flushed a seductive pink at the smooth cheeks, the plump wine-stained lips, the gently sloping collarbones…

    Clever.

    Day and night the bakkhai dance. It's enough to drive a man insane.

    Summary

    I saw the 2015 play once last month with no prior knowledge of it...I saw there isn't a fic for this version here (though there probably is on tumblr!) so thought I would do something about that.
    Hopefully it won't suck too much.

    Basically Dionysus relates what happens when Pentheus believes he has him imprisoned...so possible unreliable narrator.

    Summary

    Poor Semele, in the garden,
    Caught a god within her eye
    And great Zeus, that boundless circle
    Sighed and opened up his thigh.

    And Agave, on the mountain
    Heard a god say open wide.
